Curly Iron-Based Side Tables with Nail Head Trim

I purchased a pair of curvy iron bases from a friend.  
They originally were black, but I painted them gray and distressed them.


Curvy Iron Table Bases

I bought two pre-made round table tops at Lowes for only $10 each.
I diluted the same gray paint I used for the bases and gave the raw wood a wash.  
All I did was apply the thinned paint and rub away with a damp cloth where it was too dark.
You can see the wood grain still showing.

To dress them up I added large nail heads around the edge.

This is a good look at the nail heads, the distressed base, and the gray wash.  
Sorry it looks like a face.

Oh my, it looks like a face!!

Since this month's design theme at Sweet Clover is A Naturalist's Cottage, 
I styled the tables with some nature inspiration. 
 Oh please Spring, come soon.

One last look at that nail head.  





Yes, I admit I'm obsessed with nail head.


Please come see us at our next Sweet Clover sale, February 20-22.

Of course I'll have these unique tables for sale too.
